With changes in the Industry interface you guys seemed to have bugged things up so badly that it is often IMPOSSIBLE to install jobs in POS structures which maybe one reason their use is now low !!
Been trying a few times over past couple of weeks along with other corp mates to install research jobs at a lo sec POS and very occasionally it works though often the interface just doesn’t recognise the location or doesn’t’ want to change to the type of (supported) job we’re trying to do.
Today with the help of 2 corp mates tried doing a 3 to 7 day ME research job in a POS and 3 it accepted while all others won’t be allowed cause :
“Input material inventory location not selected”
“Output material Inventory location not selected”
“Output location is no longer available”
We can select the locations for Manufacturing on this lab tho that’s not much help for ME research.
Output location is showing and IS valid so yet another case of bugged interface it seems
ONE BIG advantage POSes have/had was flexibility.
You can do manufacturing and then swap to research or reactions and have the most economic results while the new Engineering complexes only give you the most optimum results if you rig them which then ties them to having more limited function … or we just have to use more of them at extra cost.
All this just results in extra cost and higher prices or fewer people producing certain items - leading to more monopoly in the market (and higher prices)
But I guess the economy and efficiency aren’t a big focus as they would be in realistic environments cause all Eve is concerned about is “Content” (read potential things going boom).
Also just some feedback on the new refining structures. The models look cool though I hope the ring isn’t collidable
I would think the undock point would be better located towards the top of the structure away from the ring to make access less impeded by the structure itself!
seeing how they would be focused on the moon for operations then it would make more sense to have the ports for accessing the structure higher up the structure away from the moon (and the ring formation) !
